Project Driver

Who can be a driver?

  • No, you don’t even have to attend the project! We have some basic guidelines to help you prepare for being a Circle K Driver, as well as for cancelling as a driver, but no requirements. We also reimburse based on mileage, so you will get some money to help cover gas when driving. To see these guidelines, please read this document.
